    I can't wait for the reunion! It's all I've been thinking about. I'm just way too excited for tonight't upcoming bout of drama. I look at the blogs the housewives write and Bethanny wrote some comments about it, she said it was basically tortuous.

    What do you guys think about the NJ show? Anyone planning on watching it? I watched the half hour preview twice but not feeling it. It feels like they're trying to make it like the Sopranos and I never watched that show. I think that two of the new housewives are very pretty though, the one with the 3 daughters has such pretty eyes and seems really funny and Dina the blond one seems like she has her head on right and is very pretty too and her teen daughter seems a riot. The older sister Caroline already kind of grates my nerves with the whole blood is thicker than water and we are thick as thieves attitude. I would watch it but dh plans on canceling our cable, c'est la vie, maybe I'll get the finished season from netflix.

    eta, my favorite line from the show...Happy wife, happy life! LOL

    Yay I can't wait for tonight! I might be asleep by the end of it, but I'm gonna try and stay awake!!

    I also can't wait for NJ. It'll be such a train wreck, and I love it. I'm also loving the fact that they'll be such hard-a**es, and be cussing a lot, which makes it even more hilarious. I really love NY, and enjoy watching it. NJ will be more of an entertainment thing, to make fun of it.

    I didn't watch the NJ one yet, but watched the NY reunion. I'm more looking forward to part II next Thur. this one was good but that one looks great! Andy goes right for the jugular and hits everyone's sensitive spots w/out hesitation.

    Here's my summary on each person:

    Alex - she handled herself well but she didn't have a big part in the show. I think she went a touch overboard on Bethanny but I think it's good that she mentioned it, it shows she has a backbone but it just went a little overboard. Bethanny couldn't say enough times, "Fair enough" to appease her. And Alex' eye makeup was very hard looking, I'm not into the raccoon eyes on such fair complexion, too dramatic, this wasn't a ball it was a round table discussion.

    Kelly - she was the best dressed imo. She wore an ethereal cream colored chiffon, it was wispy and understated and looked amazing. Her makeup looked great, hair pretty, skirt not too short like nearly every one else that had to do the hike down jiggle, absolutely ridiculous and uncouth to do that (sorry Bethanny as much as I adore you!). Could you picture Jackie O getting up off a couch during an interview and hiking her dress down, I mean be a lady or better yet dress like one so you don't have to risk not acting like one! Anyway, back to Kelly, she got very emotional and I don't know whether or not her story is true about her allegations, nor do I care. I'll give this to her, after Andy read off that rotten interview where she said not nice things about Bethanny, she tried to save face by complimenting Bethanny and I think Bethanny was gracious but if Bethanny could just give in and warm up a little bit, the whole thing would thaw. Kelly is really nice to be so complimentary of Bethanny to her face like that and I respect her for that even though I'm still much more of a Bethanny fan bec. she is the bomb.

    Ramona - didn't like her dress, too short and didn't do anything for her. I'm bored of her hair behind the ear look, it's so 70's trying to be back in again, I think an updo is flattering on her. I thought she presented herself well w/ the exception of the comments she made on her blog about Bethanny that she was called out for. I think she was too proud that she got 'that' insulted about Bethanny's comment about her article being older than the phone. She went overboard in her sensitivity to that comment and should have owned up to that. Other than that, I think she did ok, I had sympathy for her regarding her upbringing and the life she's lived. I think she actually seems pretty normal and a very good wife and mother which is what I respect about her. It's hard for me to like her completely though when Jill who I adore sees bad in her. I think R should get over her Jill competition, that would make her more likable to me.

    Jill - she did amazing. Her dress wasn't anything memorable but at least she wasn't fixing it incessantly. She is humble and she didn't put her foot in her mouth or get tangled up in anything. She got called out for being a lavish spender and handled that question beautifully, people are haters and jealous, she doesn't have to feel guilty for having dough to spend, she's very generous and it's her money regardless, people should get over it and focus on other things.

    Bethanny - I think she's going to suffer the brunt of the drama in these reunions. On her looks, I noticed she trimmed an inch or so off her hair, it was too sprayed and stiff looking. I didn't like her eye shadow and felt distracted by it, it gives her a hard look and is a touch tranny. I loved her dress, if it were longer it would have been my favorite, my vote went with Kelly's. B wore an emerald green lace fitted w/ cap sleeves, and a skinny black belt, the only thing is it was 4 inches too short, I saw up her whole thigh on the side and she kept having to do the shimmy to get that thing down.

    Countess - she spoke well, she's very eloquent. She handles pressure very well, I think she did a great job. Her hair and makeup are always flawless and classy. Her dress got an F from me bec. it was too revealing, the color was pretty though, a gem tone amethyst. It was a one shoulder number, a very good length, not too short and hoochie like others I've mentioned. But it dipped too low on the naked shoulder that I felt it was too revealing in that regard, I felt like it was just too much skin, don't like that look.

    The reunion was crazy!! I can't wait til part 2 on Thursday.

    I can't stand Kelly. She seems so... shady or something? I can't think of the word to desribe her.

    I love Bethanny! She is hilarious and doesn't get too dramatic.

    Alex should change her hair color...it's too much of a brassy blonde - almost orange.

    speedy, the best summary ever!! i agree with everything you said, and i was thinking the exact same things while i was watching it.

    i can't stand kelly. i seriously think she believes what she is saying. there's only a little bit of truth that comes out of her mouth, and what she's lying about, she actually believes. she's crazy.

    i love bethanny. i loved her dress even though it was REALLY short. but, seriously, her boobs are real?! yeah right! she has a bad boob job, you can see it when she wears a bathiing suit. they looked a little smaller last night, so hopefully she had them re-done (oops, i mean a "lift", bc that's what she said she had). she handled alex, ramona, and kelly well, and i give her props for that. her hair also looked much better with those extra inches cut off.

    i'm glad jill handled herself well last night. usually she is the most outspoken one, but she did well. we'll see what happens in pt. 2. she also looks so much better with her breast lift. i'm sure she feels much better, too.

    i'm surprised that luanna discussed her personal life like that. it seems a little unclassy to discuss her ex-husband the way she did, telling about the personal details of what happened. it is really crappy though to get an e-mail from him saying he has someone else and he wants a divorce. that would be terrible.

    about alex, i think she did fine with everything except for when she kept going on and on about bethanny. i like that she clarified about her book, that it wasn't a "how to" book, but a life experiences with children book.

    man, i can't wait to see what happens next week!

    I had no idea it was on today! I vaguely recall now reading you say this and then lilstrlett said next week and I naturally assumed next week as well, so I didn't tune in. Well it was 12:30am on Thur. and I was flipping through channels and I see TRHNYC and it's the reunion only I realize it's the new one w/ in seconds bec. I paid close attention during that first reunion. I thought someone at Bravo screwed up and accidentally aired next week's reunion! The reason I thought that was bec. my dvr was calling it Real for short rather than Reunion which they call the first reunion. Anyway, I saw the last 20 min. of it, I found it on Sat. I think or some day in the near future and have it scheduled to record, it's labeled as Real though on the tv schedule.

    It was good, the little bit I saw. I watched the NJ one finally tonight and that show looks really good, too bad we're getting rid of cable, hope I can get the season on netflix.

    Sure enough it did air on Thur. night, sure wish I was paying attention bec. I missed most of it I found this really accurate summary of Part 1, he made the same comment as I did about Bethanny's "Fair enough", she said it like 10x, it was hard not to recall it. And he made the comment as well about the dresses needing "aggressive adjusting". Did you guys read the Bravo blogs that the housewives write post show? Those are really good too, well Bethanny's are lol. Ramona's is a product promotion opportunity and Alex is a 'my life is so great' blog.

    good article on Reunion part 1
    'Real Housewives of NYC' reunion: Kelly has no friends - It Happened Last Night - Zap2it

    I really don't see this show having a 3rd season. At that point it would be ridiculous, it's just SO obvious that there really are only two real friendships here, Jill and Bethanny, arranging for these women to interact would be strange, they are like oil and water. After seeing how they all treated each other I felt a distaste for the dynamic and if it were me I wouldn't respect anyone for doing a 3rd season bec. these people are toxic for each other. Ramona had one bit of wisdom that best summarizes why they should not do a 3rd season, "life is too short" she says and goes on to say that she would rather surround herself with real friends and she doesn't care to put on airs to look like she's friends or make an effort. If an effort is made for a season 3 I can't help but think it's for money motives(promoting books, jewelry, causes) on the parts of "the cast" as they referred to themselves to my surprise , and that is just what they would be a cast in an entertaining tv show where you have to suspend reality, bec. the reality of it is, if there were no cameras these women would not seek each others company, with the exception of J and B.

    Oh it's not your fault I totally assumed they would string us along for a week too. I thought Jess' comment about it airing on Thur. was a typo and she meant to write next Tue. I was wrong They should have, I was willing to wait a week to watch that train wreck. I have it set to dvr the next time it airs, can't wait! I hate to say it but I really am most curious to see why LuAnn cries, I just can't picture her getting unraveled and I wonder what that comment was that set her off, I'm thinking it was about her cheating dh which is so sad.

    Man, it was so crazy! None of them talk normall, they just yell and talk over each other.

    Last night's Pt. 2 just reconfirmed Kelly's craziness. They all called her out on it, and about how she never makes any sense.

    Ramona was throwing digs at everyone left and right, and was just using that as ammo to make herself feel better.

    Alex kept herself composed and I liked that. Her and Simon are just different than them. Weird, and strange, but not bad people, and I think the other "wives" need to get over it.

    Bethanny is just Bethanny. No other way to put it. She's my favorite.

    LuAnn is just better than everyone else... oh wait "she's not." Nor does she "act that way." Yeah right. She needs to get over herself and come back down to normalcy.

    Jill is a trip. I think she handled herself well, again.

    So I watched part of the show yesterday, it got kind of boring for me when everyone was just talking over each other. I love Jill, she's just hilarious to me. Kelly looks so annoying dude. Like when she talks, I get so irritated. Lol. And it pisses me off when she goes "Stop! Just stop!" like just because you don't know what to say doesn't mean you have to stall time in order to get your dumb brain collected and talk. Ahem. It was a good season though, lol.
